Argentina Administration


Argentina has the status of a republic, with a President at its head and a system of government similar to that of the United States. The Argentinian Congress has two houses, a Senate with 69 members, and a House of Deputies consisting of 169 members.
The President, as well as his Senators and Deputies, is elected for a term of four years. The President can be re-elected for a further four years, and the current President, Carlos Menem, was re-elected by a resounding majority vote in 1995. He is currently seeking a third term in office by contesting the October 1999 elections.
On a local level, a governor is elected in each of the country's 23 provinces, and a mayor is appointed by the president for Buenos Aires, Argentina's one federal district.
